Lord's Resistance Army
12 February marks The International Day Against The Use Of Child Soldiers, otherwise known as Red Hand Day. It's an annual commemoration of children around the world caught in conflict but should also act as a reminder that this is a problem that is far from over.
Behind the nonsense of the call to 'Make Kony Famous,' the central demand of Russell's Stop Kony campaign, was the call for the US to intervene militarily against Kony and the LRA. There are a many reasons why that was wrong. And I witnessed one of the most compelling.
By all means re-post the Kony video, tell all your friends and tweet it to your heart's content. Just don't expect it to do anything.
